    It's been a while since I posted, but I came across somthing today that seems odd.
    I could be totally wrong about what they are doing, but to me it looks like this guy from American Heathen products is buying china Sebenzas putting his own spin on them and reselling them.

    Like I said I could be wrong but to me the knife just looks funny.
    It's a Facebook link so if you have face book can you check it out and let me know what you guys think.

    He removed his post so the link will no longer work. Here is the knife in question. Sorry about the quality the original photos in the link were much better.

    It looks fake to me. The hardware is wrong and blade profile seems funky.

    Looks fake to me, but cannot be completely sure as it is hard to see some of the details.

    Seems like taking the Made in Idaho off the handle would take off a lot of material due to the depth of the engraving.

    The hardware looks off and the lock bar cut out width looks suspect.

    They looked odd to me, but what got me is his statement about removing the "Idaho made" from the handle....thats a lot of material to remove.

    I think the "steel handle sebenza" was the biggest giveaway.

    Fake. And poor fakes at that. It simply looks wonky at first glance.

    Well, that says it all, that is a $20 knife at best. I hope that scum bag has a "fall" sometime real soon. :thumbdn:
